AFL games record holder Brent Harvey led from the front as North Heidelberg overcame a slow start to beat Diamond Creek by 29 points in Division two of the Northern Football League.

Harvey dominated throughout the third quarter, helping the Bulldogs turn an eight-point half-time deficit into a 30-point three quarter time lead with 11 disposals and two goals in the quarter.

The 38-year-old finished with 29 possessions and three goals in the win, and was joined by his brother as North Heidelberg’s best.

Shane Harvey finished with five goals – including North Heidelberg’s opening four of the match – as the Harvey duo led the charge for the Dogs.

“If you have someone like him you can throw down forward, it is a good luxury to have,” North Heidelberg coach Steve Saddington said.

“A bit of class got us to the top in the end.

“It was like the old days of the late ’90s and early 2000s when we were one of the powerhouse sides of Division 1.

“There were cars all around the ground … I think people got their value out of the day.”
